Notes
Content: No. 11. Ngázíshin Nat, Lord of the Five (White) Elephants, called also Ngágyaung Tagá Nat. Kyawzwá, King of Pinlè, was the son of King Thíháthú and procured five white elephants from over the sea. He died of fever and became a Nat. This Nat is represented as a royal figure in Court dress seated on a lotus, with a sword in the right hand, four umbrellas over him, and royal spittoon and betel box before him. He is supported by a five-headed elephant, which has four pots for offerings between the heads. All these accumulated insignia of royalty refer to the claim of this king in life to a descent from all the royal lines existing in his time. He is, however, sometimes represented merely as a royal soldier youth seated on a five-headed elephant, with a sword in the left hand. [p.59] No. 12. Aungbinlè Sinbyushin Nat. Thíháthú, King of Amarapúra, was the son of King Mingaung, He was killed in some rice land near the Aungbinlé Lake by the Kóngbaung Sawbwá and became a Nat. This Nat is represented standing or sitting on a lotus, or on a throne, in Court dress, with a swish or fan in the left hand; supported on a one-headed or three-headed elephant, in token of his royalty , do doubt. He is sometimes accompanied by a driver or mahaut in front, and a balú armed, or simply an attendant, behind. [p. 59].
